She has been very feisty and demanding over the past several days. I don't blame her for being so frustrated at her lack of mobility - she can't even go from laying down to sitting up independently. It has been exhausting and challenging to decide when to give in to her bad, demanding behavior and when to talk about better ways to ask what she needs. There has been a lot of crying this week - some from pain, so from fear, and some from frustration. I am really looking forward to having this fracture healed and in the past.
She was up during the night and very upset. We finally got her back to sleep, but this morning I decided to take her brace off for the first time to see if it was the brace that was causing her problems or if it was her leg. Well, the transition from the brace to splint was full of fear and crying, but once the splint from the weekend was back on she was fine. She said she doesn't want the splint because it can get caught. She said it got caught the one night (meaning Saturday night) - ugh.
So far the splint is working, we'll see how the day progresses.
Molly started "school" this week. A teacher is coming twice a week to play with Molly and so far it has been wonderful. I will keep you posted.
Jim is working a ton and so we have not had the chance to take and/or post pictures - we'll work on it.
